Last-minute Decor: Altered Frame | Crate Paper

Hello there and Happy Holidays, it's Andrea! And today I am super excited to share with you a fun last minute Christmas decorating idea using the whimsical Snow & Cocoa collection! And as much as I love decorating with cute things that I buy, is decorating with cute things that I have made! I love to make decorations, but during the holidays life can get really busy and those cute crafting projects that you had in mind to make to decorate your house with can get pushed further and further down your to do list. Here is a super fun, fast decorating idea that is easy to make and completely adhesive-less!

I made this lovely wall hanging by taking a little shabby window frame (which I found at a craft store) and tying ribbon onto it – two strands across the front from which to hang some pretty tags and pics and things. I used the oh so amazing Snow & Cocoa cut-apart sheet to cut out some of the decorative cards and tags in there like the country chic mason snow-globe and the adorable “Oh Deer” deer! I used paperclips to clip them to my ribbon. I printed out some of my favorite Christmastime photos in a 3x4 size with a white border and paper clipped those on as well. Other pieces like the tag that says “wonderful winter” and the gold Thickers from the collection that I used to add the number “25” to my wall hanging, further tell the story of this décor piece – which is obviously one of Christmastime!

I used embellishments like snowflakes from the ephemera pack and cute stickers to add some sweet little details to my decorative piece. I also used fun, out of the box pieces to my wall hanging, like the tassel and the the rubber bunny (which are from older Crate Paper collections) and the awesome bottle brush tree from Snow & Cocoa! The addition of pieces like these really add a lot of pop to my décor piece and give it a more dimensional and interactive feel!

This wall hanging was so super fast and easy to make because all I had to do was clip things onto my ribbon! And there was no adhering necessary and there was almost no cutting too! I hope you enjoyed this last-minute Christmas décor idea and that I have inspired you to make something like this using the Snow & Cocoa collection to decorate your home this year!
